Holiday Blu-ray Gift Guide 2017

Ladies and gentlemen, that sainted time of year is once again upon us. Stuffed to the eyeballs with carbohydrate-loaded food, we suck in our guts, put on our finest ensemble of pajama pants and Crocs, and venture out to the nearest mall/shopping center/big box retailer/gas station/roadside flea market to secure gifts for the ones we love. Meanwhile, the ones we tolerate will simply have to suffice with “A Tree Has Been Planted In Your Name” certificates and that fruitcake your grandfather accidentally sat on during Sunday dinner.

As we do every time around this time, Geeks Of Doom has provided for you a comprehensive guide to the finest films and TV series released to DVD and Blu-ray in 2017 (if you’re holding out for laserdisc or Betamax editions of these titles, I both pity and respect you) for you and yours to enjoy for generations to come.

Check out this year’s Holiday Geek Gift Guide: Blu-ray & DVD Edition

Marvel Cinematic Universe Rankings

Marvel will be releasing Thor: Ragnarok this coming weekend. It’s the 17th film they’ve released as a part of their ongoing successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not all of Marvel Studios’ films are built the same, but they are a part of the larger universe that they are building. Each one of them serving its purpose that is leading towards a much bigger picture. So with each and every new installment comes its praises and criticisms.

While it is easy to say that every new Marvel Studios film is better than the last, the truth is some are not. So let’s revisit our list by ranking all 17 Marvel Cinematic Universe films and seeing where Thor: Ragnarok places.

Marvel Cinematic Universe Rankings

Not all Marvel Cinematic Universe films are built the same, but they are all pieces of a larger puzzle. Each one of them serves some sort of purpose to tell its own story while also moving the universe towards a certain direction. So with each and every new installment comes new praises and criticisms.

While it is easy to say that every new Marvel Studios film is better than the last, the truth is, they are not. Some are better than others. With Spider-Man: Homecoming hitting theaters this weekend, I decided to rank all 16 MCU films that have been released, from worst to the best.

Doctor Strange Blu-ray Banner

Doctor Strange
Blu-ray Combo Pack | DVD | 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack | Digital HD
Directed by Scott Derrickson
Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton
Disney Home Entertainment
Release date: February 28, 2017

Back in November, I got to see Marvel’s Doctor Strange at a special advanced Dolby Cinema screening. I have to say, that was an incredible way to see a film like this. But as I left the theater blown away by both the film and the theatrical experience, I was like, “I can’t wait to watch this again in Blu-ray.” Then I sent an email to the other GoD writers saying, “No one dare even think of requesting Doctor Strange, that one is mine!”

So, basically, after one viewing I loved the movie and already knew I’d be excited to watch it on Blu-ray in the comfort of my own home, and to also check out the bonus features. And here we are, several months later with me now in possession of a “Cinematic Universe Edition” Blu-ray review copy, complete with lenticular cover insert, after having left no one else on staff standing. (Yes, I’m a brutal conquerer and dictator!) Right away, I was like, there’d better be feature-length audio commentary on this thing! And, yes, director Scott Derrickson did provide this for the Blu-ray Edition, so he’s safe.

Empress Eve’s Top 10 Favorite Movies Of 2016

Top 10 Favorite Movies of 2016

Now that 2016 is behind us, it’s time for me to reveal my favorite Movies of 2016. On a global level, the year 2016 will go down in history as a difficult one, where we lost a lot of talented people and there seemed to be an overall negativity in the air (thanks in part to the general election here in the U.S). On a personal level, 2016 was not only difficult, but sorrowful, as I lost my father to cancer. My dad loved movies, and every time we got together, we would discuss the films we had recently seen. Dad got sick early in the year, so we didn’t get to have our usual movie pow-wows.

My top movies are always of the blockbuster, superhero, scifi/fantasy variety, with some comedies sprinkled in, because I like to rewatch movies, so I tend to pick more uplifting titles as “favorites” — therefore, I’m not saying my list is of the “best” movies, they are just the ones I enjoyed the most and will likely rewatch to my heart’s content.

Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel's Doctor Strange

I got the chance to take in an advanced screening on Thursday night of Marvel’s new film Doctor Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, at a Dolby Cinema at the AMC Theatres in New York City. Before the movie began, representatives from Dolby gave a presentation demonstrating their Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos technologies, and how their Dolby Total Cinema Experience compares to the standard theater-going experience. And I have to say, I was very impressed. Below are my thoughts on the Dolby Cinema experience and technologies, details from the demonstration, and then my two cents about Doctor Strange itself.

Check out the fantastic scene below.

James Gunn Directed Some Future Stan Lee MCU Cameos

James Gunn director of Guardians of the Galaxy

A common staple of any film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the Stan Lee cameo. This cameo has led to the popular theory that the Marvel Comics co-creator is, in fact, The Watcher, better known as Uatu, an all-mighty being stationed on Earth to monitor the activities of other species. Though this theory was disproven, we are still going to get to see Lee cameo in MCU films for as long as he is alive. But the guy isn’t getting any younger, and flying from set to set for just a cameo wouldn’t make any sense. So he’s already filmed his cameos for the next four MCU films. But did you know that the man who helped make all of that possible was Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn?

More on the story below.
